Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Flooding Basement Repaired and Waterproofed in Lerna, IL
A basement was flooding due to an overflowing sump pump in Lerna, IL, so a TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from common problems with an ordinary pump. It can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump included inside that will help eliminate the water if the first pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water that is entering it. It also features a removable airtight lid which reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. Next, the CleanSpace Basement Wall System was installed. his will prevent water vapor from permeating the basement walls. The white color will also brighten the basement, reflecting the light. Any wall leaks will also be drained. Lastly, a SaniDry Sedona was installed. This efficient, high-capacity, dehumidification system also includes an air filtration system, all in a single unit. This system wrings the air dry, and its powerful blower moves the dry air in and around the basement. It also automatically drains the water it catches into the sump pump, so there is no need to empty any bucket with this system. Thanks to these systems, this basement will remain clean and dry for years to come!
